This is an optional, user-provided file. If it exists,
the builder's /etc/make.conf will be appended with the
contents of this file. For the default profile, the

Thanks for the tip.
I already have read the man page because I git-cloned synth tree from github repository.
I want to keep the Ada code for viewing, among other things.
My first attempt to build synth was on FreeBSD-current amd64 and failed when the system rebooted itself when I was sleeping. Apparently no filesystem damage.
System came up in System Rescue CD 5.0.0 USB-stick installation.
I attribute this to FreeBSD-current instability rather than synth or ports, meaning I must first rebuild FreeBSD 11.0-STABLE amd64 installation, and then from there, FreeBSD-current amd64.
